It’s been almost two years since I’ve been gluten free. It’s actually pretty crazy when I stop and think about it. Because what the really means is it’s been almost two years since I’ve been (mostly) migraine free. And after a 15 year battle with monthly migraines, my mind is completely blown that a simple (moderately speaking) lifestyle change, could cure something that had such a debilitating effect on my life.
All that to say, a lot of people often ask why I went gluten free, and there’s my answer.
While being gluten free hasn’t been too hard for me, it has been a bit of a journey in the baking department. After a few trial and error attempts at making my own all purpose flour blend (something I could use as a direct substitute for regular flour, in ANY recipe), I finally conjured up one that works on everything I’ve tried. It’s seriously like magic. I don’t have to hunt for gluten free recipe’s any more, and everything looks and tastes just as it should.
And these gluten free grahams are proof. I put these crunchy snacks to the test at our Fall Open House for The Classroom Collective, and they were a HUGE HIT! Even a few gluten free skeptics, gave rave reviews! And because they were so widely successful, I thought I’d go ahead and share the recipe here.
Like I mentioned above. I used my super secret, incredible gluten free flour blend. But you can make these grahams regular or gluten free. If you’re local and you want to get your hands on some of my flour blend, I’ve sold several bags at The Classroom Collective events, but I’m also hoping to make it more available on a regular basis. I’ve got a couple plans that are still in the works, but if you send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org , I can keep you in the loop.
One more thing…
Several people were asking about these unbelievably delicious homemade mallows we had at our open house and I promised I’d post the source. Pay a visit to my new favorite, The Clever Carrot, found on here on Pinterest for the very best homemade mallow recipe, sans corn syrup!
